Saint Joseph London Recognized for Performance Leadership by The Chartis Center for Rural Health

LONDON, Ky. (Jan. 30, 2024) – Saint Joseph London has announced it has been recognized with a 2023 Performance Leadership Award for excellence in Outcomes. Compiled by the Chartis Center for Rural Health, the Performance Leadership Awards honor top quartile performance (i.e., 75th percentile or above) among rural hospitals in Quality, Outcomes and/or Patient Perspective.

“We are proud to receive the esteemed 2023 Performance Leadership Award for outstanding Outcomes at Saint Joseph London,” said John Yanes, president, Saint Joseph London. “This recognition reflects the consistent dedication and hard work of our exceptional staff. At Saint Joseph London, our commitment to delivering the highest quality care to our community is unwavering, and this award from the Chartis Center for Rural Health reinforces our pursuit of excellence.”

The Performance Leadership Awards are based on the results of the Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX®, the industry’s most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural hospital performance. INDEX data is relied upon by rural hospitals, health systems with rural footprints, hospital associations and state offices of rural health around the country to measure and monitor performance across several areas impacting hospital operations and finance.

“Wherever we go in rural America, we witness first-hand the commitment, determination, and compassion with which rural hospitals serve their communities. Rural health care truly is mission-driven,” said Michael Topchik, National Leader, The Chartis Center for Rural Health. “This National Rural Health Day, let us recognize the efforts of this year’s Performance Leadership Award winners and all those driven to deliver high quality care throughout rural communities.”
